Imaging seeing your camera adjust its settings automatically depending on whether you're inside or outside, something that can be determined by GPS. The weather information can be used to determine if it is a sunny day, or if is raining or even overcast. Will this be something that ever finds its way into an Android phone? As long as it doesn't add much to the cost, most people would enjoy having anything that improves the quality of their pictures without having to tinker with the settings.
